About Us

The Fedora Design Team is Fedora's in-house design agency. We provide artwork, user experience, usability, and general design services to the Fedora project.

Our current team goals:

  • Template and Automate - Generate templates, standards, and automation where possible for more efficient and consistent artwork production.
  • Increased focus on UX/usability - Increase the amount of UX and usability work we provide to the Fedora project through both more efficient usage of current designer time and also better recruitment of UX/usability team members and better documentation of UX/usability tasks and processes.
  • FLOSS Creative Tool Education & Outreach - Continue to use the very same free and open source creative tools available in Fedora to design for Fedora, and increase and improve knowledge sharing with the general FLOSS community.
  • Clear Priorities - Strive to be more selective about our focus as a team and set clear priorities so the things that are most important to Fedora are done in a timely and organized manner.

Examples:

  • New Fedora website
